Courtesy of 7,000 coffee plants, Hacienda AltaGracia is effectively a working coffee plantation, and there is much to discover within our grounds and our rural community. In collaboration with Los Jilgueros, a local coffee cooperative in our neighboring village of Cedral, we harvest and roast the beans from our own coffee trees, serving the coffee to our guests. Guests may also visit Los Jilgueros to learn more about the process.
